The Myth of Control

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”  Reinhold Niebuhr’s prayer reminds us of the limits of our own agency as we try to control the outcomes of our lives and the lives of those around us – as parents, as teachers, as addicts, spouses, friends.  How do we find that wisdom to accept the myth of control even as we exert our will to shape and transform our lives?

Our first Sunday drop-in covenant group will focus on our monthly theme of “Letting Go”.  All are invited to participate.
